Alkaline diet

Alkaline diet

The Alkaline diet (also known as the alkaline acid diet and the acid alkaline diet) is a controversial dietary protocol based on the consumption of mainly fresh low sugar fruit, vegetables, roots and tubers, nuts, and legumes and avoiding grains, dairy, meat and excess salt, in order to balance the acidity and alkalinity (the "pH balance") of one's body.

Without well designed human research studies showing that these diets actually do what they say they can, many qualified dietitians, nutritionists and other health care professionals have not recommended these diets to their patients [quoted from [http://www.dana-farber.org/pat/support/nutrition/ask-the-nutritionist.html#number9 Ask the nutritionist] (accessed April 8, 2008)] .

A similar theory, called the Dr. Hay diet, was developed by the American physician William Howard Hay in the 1920s. A later theory, called nutripathy, was developed by another American, Gary A. Martin, in the 1970s. [ [http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/Tests/reams.html Quackwatch link] ] Others who have promulgated alkaline-acid diets include Edgar Cayce, D. C.
